Algae versus Soy

More interesting information about biodiesel from algae rather than food :

Matt’s company is taking CO2 from local industry and pumping it into specially built algae ponds, which are harvested every three to five days. While one acre of soy can produce about a barrel of biodiesel a in a year, the same land dedicated to this unique process produces between 1500-2000 barrels of B100 a year, depending on how sunny it is. Talk about solar power!
